CIMES continuously improves its simulation and testing processes. The company has been ISO 9001 certified since 2014 and EN9100 since September 2019 (pdfsee the certificate -98.15 KB).

Innovation at all times

CIMES develops a continuous innovation policy, that is supported by numerous national and international partners. Our objectives: to constantly improve the reliability and accuracy of our simulations and actively participate in the emergence of innovative projects and products, created by our customers.

Improving the digital modeling performance

CIMES has developed innovative tools to integrate the results of tests carried out for each of its projects into its simulation solutions.

This comparison of the calculated models with the real data leads to the continuous optimisation of the reliability and the quality of our simulations.

The key: better controlled industrial risk and reduced development time.

Simulate to innovate

Numerical simulation is the ideal tool for developing and testing your innovation projects, regardless of their maturity. The CIMES teams support numerous scientific and R&D teams in their research programs, in order to improve and accelerate their progress.

Research Tax Credit

CIMES is approved by the Ministry of Higher Education and Research (MHER) under the Research Tax Credit scheme (RTC). This approval allows our customers to benefit from a tax reduction calculated on the cost of the R&D work they entrust to us.
